Location Hotel swimming pool empty / under maintenance despite advertised as open in July/Aug. Staff know very little of area - walking, recreation etc. and did not even have brochures. Also very noisy due to open, central staircase connecting rooms, dining areas, bar etc, not helped by school party of 50+ staying there.
The Instructions how to get there are a bit hazey
Friendly and helpful staff, good food If only it were not 1hr 15min from Motorland!
the disign of the hotel it was a bit too warm in the hotel
nice relaxing place
Amazing hotel in a quite viallge in the mountains of Aragon province of Spain. Amazing atmosphere
The room was excellent but the food was very poor for four star hotel and the village is so small that there is nowhere else to eat. Breakfast was very limited in choice. The dining room is like a baronial hall, something like Hearst Castle out of "Citizen Kane" but the dinners are very poor, a limited choice and the hot main courses seem to have been cooked beforehand and then kept warm until service, A pity, because a good kitchen could transform this hotel as aplace to stay. The food
Situated in a charming old village, the presentation of this 18th century palace was quite unique in my experience. Housing many original pertinent oil paintings, chandeliers and other interesting artifacts found in the many sitting rooms and various crannies. Thus time spent in the hotel was always interesting. The hotel has been completely refurbished recently and is under new management as ftom !st April 2010. We stayed for 3 nights half board and despite the fact that we were the only guests for part of the time, the staff went more than that extra mile to make us comfortable. We found the hotel made a very suitable base from which to explore the Maestrazgo region. Thoroughly recommended.
The breakfast could have been better.
Beautiful, beautiful building and equally beautiful room - probably both too good for the village!
Beautiful, newly renovated building in a small, quiet village. Lovely public spaces. Not very busy (either because of location of village or because hotel is new). Dinner menu was fixed price (three courses including wine, eater and coffee) and was excellent value.
This hotel far exceeded my expectations, particularly in terms of value. For the paltry sum of XX euros (advised not to mention a specific price), I got a spacious clean room with a terrific bathroom (great towels), A hotel built into some kind of old Aragonese palacial building (exceptionally charming), and a breakfast that was superb and filling (not two biscuits and jam as some continental breakfasts can be). Really a hotel like this would cost at least five times this amount in either Madrid or Barcelona; and at least double this anywhere else in Spain. It is definetely a destination hotel (well worth the trip) as the village of Iglesuela del Cid, while very charming, is a tiny village that can be walked and seen in a couple of hours. For me it wasn't a problem (I speak French and they had a staff member who did as well) but Spain, as a whole, seems oblivious to the fact that English is the new lingua franca. Not a single person in the hotel spoke passable English, (nor does anyone else outside of Madrid and Barcelona). I also like an exercise room, however small, in order to do proper contrition after eating the hearty and good food that this place serves.
Splendid mixture of old building and good service.
